WYS Training Races 

About the Training Races:

In addition to seven (7) Westhampton Yacht Squadron (WYS) Summer Series and Labor Day Races (see WYS Summer Series Races & WYS Labor Day Races), there will be five (5) Summer Training Race days for Flying Scots and and three (3) Summer Training Race days for Sunfish on Saturday mornings with the goal of providing more sailboat racing for both inexperienced and experienced WYS racing sailors in a non-regatta environment.

New/inexperienced sailors can participate in and learn about racing and race management while racing with and against more experienced sailors who are practicing and honing their racing skills. New race support volunteers will work with race officers on the Race Committee Boat or support/safety boats. 


These training races are not a “learn to sail program,” but a “learn to race program.” Youth learn sailing at WYS summer lessons. Adults interested in learning to sail should either register for Saturday morning "Adult Sunfish Lessons", Tuesday evening "Recreational Sailing", Tuesday evening "Adult Sailing Clinic", or inquire about Private Lessons. See Private Lessons for more information.
